Description

The Holocaust is perhaps the most important and devastating moment in recent history. Over six million Jewish people and six million Soviet citizens, and many others were the murdered by a genocidal regime between 1932 and 1945. More than 75 years later, incidents of antisemitism in the United States are on the rise. This three-part series examines the history of antisemitism (Sep 22 with Laura Zelle), the Holocaust (Oct 27 with Ethan Roberts), and the effort to historically document these events through artifacts and memorialization (Nov 17 with Jonathan Edelman).

Ethan Roberts is Director of Government Affairs at the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC). Now in his 15th year, Ethan is the principal lobbyist for Minnesota’s Jewish community and the lead government affairs professional for the JCRC. In addition to securing millions of state and federal dollars for the social service agencies of the Twin Cities Jewish community, Ethan has also led three trips to Israel for State Legislators in 2016, 2017, and 2019. In 2013, Ethan was awarded the Leon & Sylvia Sorkin Jewish Communal Professional Achievement Award by the Minneapolis Jewish Federation. Prior to that, in 2010, Ethan received the inaugural Len Lieberman Professional of the Year Award from the Association of Jewish Community State Government Affairs Directors for his national leadership. Ethan is a graduate of Stanford Law School and Macalester College, and an alum of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Rothberg International School.

Organized and sponsored by Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality in collaboration with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) and cosponsored by the Jay Phillips Center for Interreligious Studies at the University of St. Thomas.
